Lentil, Avocado, Caramelized Maple Sweet Potato Salad

Here’s a quick & yummy lunch idea you can whip up in minutes if you take some time to meal prep some roasted sweet potato or butternut squash & any grains or legumes of your choice!

It’s yummy, nutritious, filling, has a great balance of plant protein, carbs, fibre, greens & healthy fats, light, fresh & full of flavour!

BTW, did you know that soaking your lentils in water & sea prior to cooking them helps make them more easily digestible? The outer shell of contains anti-nutrients that may interfere with digestion & soaking them neutralizes these enzyme inhibitors & takes the strain away from your digestive system, especially if it’s already more sensitive than average!

  • Fody Foods lemon & herb seasoning
  • 1/2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 3 tbsp. raw organic apple cider vinegar
  • Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
  • Sea salt to taste

TO MAKE:
